Wolf shifter gamma Silas Donovan takes his responsibilities towards the pack’s security very seriously.  He’d rather not leave their safety in another’s hands, but when the Alpha asks for a personal favor Donovan reluctantly agrees to a bodyguard job.

 

The world’s top model is none other than Asian golden cat shifter Aran Aquino.  Plans have been made for a fantastic photo layout centered on Aran on Fregate Island in the Seychelles where the Banyon Hill Estate is the only sign of modern life on the entire island.

 

After long flights and hours of boat travel everyone finally arrives on the island.  Donovan is there to protect the model from possible threats though the only people there are Aran’s own entourage and the boat crew.

 

When Donovan is introduced to Aran the wolf shifter is pleasantly surprised to find his charge isn’t the stuck up brat he expects to meet.  He also realizes that he’s found his mate in the golden cat shifter.  Protecting Aran is going to prove easier than figuring out how the two will blend their lives.  Canine and feline mates should be interesting to say the least.

 

The Pariah Pack returns with another new tale.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat brings unlikely mates Donovan and Aran together in this sexy suspense story.  Watch the sexual sparks fly between the wolf and his cat.  All in all the storyline follows along as expected with tense moments from an unexpected foe at the climax.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat has a tropical locale, hot loving, and a pair of agreeable characters.

Series: Pariah Pack #1
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: MM, Paranormal

Alpha Max Wolfe is in charge of an unusual pack.  His people are cast offs, the misfits that other packs threw out or those who survived the decimation of their own pack. They have bonded together with the wolf shifter as their leader.  Now passing the century mark Wolfe is a successful bounty hunter who also dabbles in racing for extra income.

 

After a recent race Wolfe caught a scent in the crowd that had to have been his mate.  When he tried to chase the scent down he caught sight of a young man but somehow lost him.  Once he picked up the scent again Wolfe tracked down Peter Bennett, a rabbit shifter who saves abused animals when he’s not working at an animal shelter.

 

Of all the cosmic twists of fate – pairing a predator to prey as mates.  Wolfe’s inner animal is driving him to consummate their relationship, to bond forever.  As for Peter he’s skeptical that they can work things out.  He’s not sure they can ever find common ground and asks Wolfe to wait, to let them get to know each other before making the ultimate commitment.  After all they only get one mate in a lifetime. Patience, Wolfe, patience.  Surely it’s not too much to ask.

 

Wolfe and His Bunny charmingly questions what fate was thinking matching a wolf and a rabbit.  Time after time readers see Wolfe stumble during his attempts to court Peter who proves to have a great deal of patience.  Each makes mistakes, sometimes big mistakes.  What sets Wolfe and His Bunny above other books is that Wolfe and Peter are willing to keep trying.  Neither throws in the towel on love.  Through false starts and speed bumps Wolfe and His Bunny triumphs.

SWEET AND SOUR SOAP by Susan LaineSweet and Sour Soap by Susan Laine
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: Contemporary, MM

Actors Andrew ‘Mac’ McGuire and Dylan Keane began their careers on the night time soap show “The Lighthouse”.  Their friendship developed alongside their roles as teenagers and grew as their characters evolved on the popular soap.

 

In a meeting with the producer and the head writer Mac and Dylan are told of a major change in the show’s plot.  Their characters are going to develop a gay relationship as a way to pump up the ratings.  Speechless at first their initial rehearsal is awkward to say the least.

 

One evening when Mac agrees to practice an intense scene away from the set Dylan admits to being bisexual.  He also says that he’s had a thing for Mac though he never expected it to go anywhere.  The lines are beginning to blur between reality and the make believe world of television for two best friends.

 

Relationship issues are lightly explored in the drama Sweet and Sour Soap.  Mac and Dylan are pleasant characters whose lives and love take on a bizarre parallel with their soap characters.  Sometimes it’s difficult to decide which romance is realistically working since their motivation is sometimes questionable.  In the end Sweet and Sour Soap manages to succeed.  Mac and Dylan make the right choices for their future together.

An EMT for the District of Columbia Fire & EMS Department, playboy Jack Waters lives for his job and sexual prowling.  At the moment he’s ‘off’ with his ‘on and off’ bed buddy Det. Kevin Thompson who happens to be partnered with Det. Jordan Waters, Jack’s big brother.

On his way home from work Jack smells smoke and hears someone calling for help.  He calls it in but doesn’t wait for backup before running into the building.  Next thing he knows Jack’s waking up in the hospital with first and second degree burns along an entire side of his body from face to torso.  He was rescued by fireman Luke Kennard who begins flirting with Jack the moment they’re introduced in the hospital.  

Starting something with Luke as he recuperates should feel right, yet Jack can’t get Kevin out of his head which is very frustrating.  Jack is also told that there are other fires similar to the one that injured him cropping up all over town.  Hurting either man is the last thing Jack wants to do, but he owes it to them and him to decide once and for all. And he wants to help catch the fire bug, sooner than later. 

Enjoy watching sexy, feisty Jack realize what was right in front of him all along.  In A Luminous Touch, the third book in the Senses and Sensations series, the main characters danced around a relationship without making an attempt at seriously communicating.  Luke becomes the catalyst who forces Jack and Kevin to finally examine what’s been going wrong between them.  Easily read as a standalone story A Luminous Touch features engaging characters and a couple of wicked twists in the plotline to enhance the overall story.  This series rocks.
